Happy 1st Birthday Aidan!!
Last year at exactly 12 minutes to midnight on Dec. 25th, little Aidan made his debut into the world and has been wowing us with his big blue eyes every since.
Many of you know that 2 years ago on Dec. 22nd, my oldest daughter gave birth to a stillborn baby, Avery. It is devastating to go thru something like that and even more so during the holidays. Needless to say, it was very very hard to make sure that the younger children still had a Christmas, when we all were feeling such incredible pain and shock over the unexpected loss. I can not tell you how difficult it was as a parent to watch my daughter mourn the loss of her daughter. I lost my first born daughter when she was a year old, so I could completely understand the depth of her pain.
My daughter is a strong young women with such a kind spirit. She became pregnant very quickly after her body had healed and when I found out that this baby would be due in the same time frame, it gave me much worry. However, her doctor and ultrasound doctor watched over her like a hawk and as things were going awry with this pregnancy towards the end as well, labor was induced on Christmas eve and God blessed us with this little angel at 12 minutes to 12, on the 25th day of the 12th month. Hows that for a bunch of lucky numbers!!
Happy birthday, sweet boy!
(needless to say........he enjoyed his chocolate birthday cake!)
